In fiery speech, Giuliani calls on Obama to resign, faults him for Libya

by CNN's Ashley Killough

(CNN) - Not long after taking a few seconds of silence for those affected by Superstorm Sandy, Rudy Giuliani began ripping into President Barack Obama on Friday while speaking at major campaign event for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan in Ohio.

The former New York City mayor delivered a series of blistering zingers against the president, rallying the massive crowd with line after line of reasons why Obama should "resign" and faulting him for "incompetence" over the Libya consulate attacks.

Incompetence was only the beginning... it was followed by lies, more incompetence, a coverup, whitewash and media blackout.

Wow! Why didn’t Fox run this speech instead of letting Whoraldo defend Obama’s handling of Benghazi? Inquiring minds want to know.

Guiliani: “You know what stands in his way? You know what’s going to stop him? Ohio! You’re going to do it,” he said.

Dear God, let it be so.

Whoraldo looked rattled tonight on BOR's show. He is still trying to defend Obama and not being able to do anything the night of the attack.

BS Whore, if our guys were putting targeting lasers on targets, then we had something that could have hit those targets and those assets were told to stand down. Whoever gave that order murdered our people.

One or two hellfire missiles might have saved our men's lives. Who gave the order not to fire?

It is everything. For those associates I have not been able to turn until now, I simply ask them if they can tolerate continual hearing and impeachment of Obama over this Benghazi situation.

If they will not vote for Romney, then maybe they just won’t vote. This story resonates and demoralizes the left as much as it saddens and angers us. I wish I had not already early voted so I could go vote again. Same vote, but just again. The pleasure of voting against Obama is great.

Here CNN tries to ambush Guilliani with tiny general Weasel Clark Wesley Clark spinning the Obama line

We need our people to counter this silliness that we couldn't have an airstrike or backup or a drone with missiles to help out during the 7 hour battle. Plus, with all the threats and with 911 approaching, why were we not expecting something especially in the hot spot of Benghazi???? Obama needs to resign. Weasel Clark needs to go away.

Benghazi can’t be ignored.

The fact that Rudy was blasting away at Obama over Benghazi at a huge Romney rally might not please you, but I’m absolutely delighted!

These things don’t just happen, Romney was on board with it or Rudy would have never brought it up. Damn smart way to do it!

I certainly don’t agree with some of Rudy’s beliefs, and he is probably more of a RINO than I’d like, but dang it - I love it when he goes on the attack, and I honestly do like the man.

These guys didn’t know how long our guys could last in a firefight. they just wrote them off the same way that they write off infantry soldiers in Afghanistan rather than risk collateral damage with air support.

No RRF in the area. No marines at the embassy. No attempt to send a RRF at all.

It’s a disgrace and half the country does not give a good shit about it.

Speaking of Wesley Clark:

MAY 2008 : (OBAMA ADVISOR ROBERT MALLEY, IN AN INTERVIEW, REVEALS HE HAS BEEN IN REGULAR CONTACT WITH HAMAS AS PART OF GEORGE SOROS'S THINK TANK ICG-- See ICG BOARDMEMBERS SOROS, BRZEZINSKI, FORMER GENERAL WESLEY CLARK ) International Crisis Group In May 2008, Malley said in an interview that he had been in regular contact with Hamas, as part of his work for a conflict resolution think-tank called the International Crisis Group. This aroused ire and concern in pro-Israel circles, and prompted a spokesman for Obama to say that “Rob Malley has, like hundreds of other experts, provided informal advice to the campaign in the past. He has no formal role in the campaign and he will not play any role in the future.”
One of the sponsors of the International Crisis Group is billionaire George Soros, who sits on its board and its executive committee. Other members of the board include former United States National Security Advisor to President Jimmy Carter, Zbigniew Brzezinski, and former general Wesley Clark, who called US support for Israel during the Second Lebanon War a "serious mistake" and said that "New York money people" were pushing the United States towards a confrontation with Iran.-------Report: Obama Sends Advisor Malley to Cozy Up to Egypt and Syria," arutz 7 ^ | 11/9/08 | Gil Ronen , Posted on Sunday, November 09, 2008 7:08:35 PM by Nachum

Yes indeed. If we cry out for impeachment after an election then this is what will be said: “You had your chance to impeach him, it was called an “election.” Little note will be made of how the story was hidden. This election is probably the last best chance to pre-impeach.

I ask those still unpersuaded about the fact that we were looked in the eye and lied to in a very large way, reminding them that when someone does that sort of lying they think you are too stupid to know it or too weak to do anything about it. We have all the power until Tuesday and then nobody cares at all what we think.

Obama is indeed incompetent but the Benghazi catastrophe was not caused by incompetence. It was willful and utter disregard for American lives, malfeasance, even treasonous. Obama should serve hard time for this.

The murder of our Ambassador was an act of war and should be treated as such.

My prediction is that Romney wins and squelches any investigation, in the interests of comity, social harmony - "lets let bygones be bygones". Mitt is better than Obama but he's a total squish at heart.

This is good! My guess is that Rudy deliberately employed the incendiary language to garner some headlines, thus forcing CNN and perhaps other mainstream medial types to start covering the Benghazi disgrace.

“My prediction is that Romney wins and squelches any investigation, in the interests of comity, social harmony - “lets let bygones be bygones”.”

Maybe, but I think if Romney wins, there will be a lot of people, perhaps CIA or FBI, with inside knowledge of what transpired who may suddenly feel free to spill all the beans.

Well said, Rudy!

Benghazi-Coward Obama has proven that he showed abject cowardliness in the face of the enemy, and then retreated to Sin City, Nevada.
